Gmail Smart-Delete Button Ver. 0.7.3 Interim Release!

[for FireFox ver 1.5+ & Greasemonkey 6.4 users]

PARTIAL FIX - Gmail's playing games, once again, with their document object model. This release restores 'Smart-Delete' functionality for the 'Upper' Smart-Delete button. (The lower button has not yet been addressed, nor have the buttons within a mailitem).

I will also try, in the near future, to integrate the logic of versions 7.2 and 7.3, so the script will work if Gmail continues to toggle back and forth their DOM changes.

Features: User defined keyboard shortcut - User can set which key they would like to use to trigger mail deletion. (The default letter is 'd', but by editing the script file any letter can be used. Just find the following line of code near the beginning of the script:
var TheDeleteKey='d';
And change the key letter to whichever one you like.
Be careful, though, not to select a shortcut already being used by Gmail!)

[To install, right-click the above link & choose 'Install User Script...' from context menu.]

Keep those comments and suggestions coming!
I'll try to implement any useful (and reasonable) suggestions you come up with.
Check back often for updates!

Thank you very much Paul!! The last 2 weeks have been hell without my Smart-Delete! [The 'd' button on my keyboard had developed a complex and was feeling neglected. :-)]

Paul, I hacked up a couple lines of the script to make the delete button work within messages. I haven't tested it extensively, but it seems to work for me. If you can give me a way to send it to you, I will.
